The band have potentially found a new bass player in the form of Rob Holzner (ex-trouble) and they'll be trying him out at their first show in almost a year at the Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA. on March 19th 2001 with Acid King, Warhorse & Electric Wizard.

It's been a long
time since the last 'snake update....
A bit of a line up change, Stuart Dahlquist is no longer playing bass with the band, but they are currently in the process of trying out some new bass players. Goatsnake is regrouping and will hopefully be out playing some shows very soon.
On a lighter note, congratulations to Greg and Shannon Rogers! They had a baby boy, Elijah!

Greg Anderson on the new Goatsnake L.P. which is set for a September release.
"I was fortunate to use a lot of cool gadgets, including a great amp...the Laney Klipp, which was the amp Iommi/Sabbath used on Master of Reality and Volume 4, VERY FUCKING HEAVY! Also used a Baritone guitar, and a amazing effects box called a swollen pickle! The songs are a bit different than the previous recordings. I would say the heaviness youve come to expect from us, is heavier, mixed with more melody. Doomier in places but more catchy in others. The drum sounds are amazing."
Some of the new songs are: The River, The Dealer, Coyote, Live To Die, Flower of Disease, A Prayer For Dying, Greazy.
A demo version of "The Innocent" will appear on a upcoming compilation CD on TVT records (alongside Thurston Moore, Nashville Pussy, Jesus Lizard and more) and "A Timeless Tale....A tribute to Saint Vitus" is slated for winter 2000/2001 release on DreamFire Records. The project is fully supported & endorsed by Dave Chandler and alongside Goatsnake it features Internal Void, Sons Of Otis, Voodoo Shock, Penance, Solace, Mirror Of Deception, Volume, Tummler and many more.
Also, Goatsnake are currently booking a european tour for the end of the year with Spirit Caravan and Beaver (dates will be posted in the near future)
